Fast Forward TEDx conference (ext event)

Description: Correction: TEDx conference is Saturday 7 September!

"Human progress has led us to being the most advanced animal on the planet, colonising continents, building civilisations, creating technologies and systems which allow us to connect and work collectively in our continual endeavours to thrive as a species. Our population is booming, our tools are sophisticated, our global connectivity exceeds anything that has gone before. But to what end? Where are we heading? Are we failing to learn from the past? Are we doing enough to address the challenges we face?

"Our TEDxLeicester Conference 2019, Fast Forward, will bring together speakers and performers who will share their knowledge, stories and ideas about our progress; what we can take from our history and understand about our present as we launch ourselves into an unknown future. We’ll hear from people with a whole range of backgrounds and a hugely diverse worldview who will inspire and excite.

"Come to be a part of a day that will engage you in conversation; leave feeling energised and imagining a better future. Connect with hundreds of other delegates throughout a full-day event in the heart of the city. Our venue for the day, The Y Theatre, is the oldest performance venue in Leicester and we’ll be using its stage to tell #IdeasWorthSharing.
Join us for what promises to be a unique event for Leicester in 2019.
